Make reading part of your summer adventure and keep your brain sharp with Deal's summer reading assignments for rising 6th, 7th, and 8th Vikings! All Deal students are required to complete a reading assignment as part of their Language and Literature (English Language Arts) class. These assignments will be graded and are a great opportunity to make a strong first impression with your new teachers. We look forward to hearing what our Vikings learned from the exciting books their teachers picked out. Be sure to start early and read, read, read!

The ADCA holds numerous events all year long, but we can’t do it alone. That’s why this year, we’re asking all families to donate the most important resource to Deal: their time. Just five hours total throughout the school year will make Deal the best it can be.
Stay tuned for volunteer opportunities throughout the school year or email the ADCA presidents to volunteer now.


Weekly Bulletin

Principal's Message:
June 9, 2019

I hope you were able to enjoy our sixth graders' production of Willy Wonka this weekend! The cast was wonderful and the confetti was amazing! Thank you to our directors, stage crew, ADCA, parent/guardian and student volunteers, custodial staff, Welcome Center staff, and the absolutely fabulous 6th graders who made the production possible. It was truly one of the best performances I have seen at Deal!

Final Week of School-This final week of school will be a busy one, especially for our 8th graders. They will travel to King's Dominion, attend the annual 8th grade dance, and finally, celebrate their middle school success at promotion!
Our 7th graders will also travel to King's Dominion and our 6th graders will have some fun in the water at Cameron Run. 

Attendance-Although we are in our final week of school, students are expected to attend every day, on time until June 14. Please contact or with any attendance questions or concerns.

Enrollment-If you are one of the 430 families who have not enrolled your student for SY 19-20, now is the time! Please stop by our Welcome Center this week to enroll. Per DCPS guidelines, all students must be enrolled for SY 19-20 by Friday, June 14. Enrollment is quick and easy, thanks to our pre-printed forms. Please contact Assistant Principal Maples ( if you have any questions regarding enrollment.

Summer School-If you have been contacted by your child's grade level administrator or counselor regarding summer school enrollment, please be sure to return your child's application this week. Please reach out to your child's grade-level administrator or counselor for further information.

Thank You-Seems like the first day of school was just yesterday. Time certainly does fly! As we close out another school year at Deal, I want to take this opportunity to express my immense gratitude to our staff, students and families. I cannot thank everyone enough for the endless hours of planning, volunteering, donating, organizing and going above and beyond to support our students and ensure their success. Not only am I grateful, I am also filled with excitement about SY 19-20. 
Have an amazing summer!

Onward and Upward!
